High School Roundup: Defending champion returns to Windsor wrestling tournament

By

Defending champion Huntington is among the 28 wrestling teams that will be competing in the Windsor Christmas Tournament that begins at 1 p.m. Friday at Windsor High School.

The 57th annual tournament, the oldest in the state and one of the top tournaments in the area, will conclude Saturday with the championship finals at 5.

Admission today is $4 for adults and $2 for students, with admission Saturday $5 for adults and $3 for students.

Among the top Section 4 teams competing in this year’s event are Union-Endicott, Vestal, Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton/Harpursville, and Deposit-Hancock. Last year, Huntington won its ninth Windsor title and first since 2003, its 168 points well ahead of runner-up Greene’s tally of 123.

Among individual title-seekers, former state champion Tristan Rifanburg is vying for a third straight Windsor crown. Last year, Rifanburg captured the 132-pound title with a first-period pin of Jesse Griswold of B-G/A.
